 +===== Future Directions in Rayleigh =====
 +//last updated 2018 November 8//
 +
 +=== Future Directions (current )===
 +  * Improved linear solve + derivatives (Quasi-inverse;​ Chebyshev Galerkin scheme) -- //Ben M. / Kyle A. / Nick F.//
 +  * Improve OpenMP Implementation
 +  * OpenMP/GPU hybrid legendre transforms (OpenACC/​Cuda;​ OpenMP w/ offload?) -- //Kyle A / Nick F.//
 +  * Chebyshev Spectra
 +  * Coefficients at given theta/phi (or set of theta/phi)
 +  * Coefficients at given ell/m (or set of ell/m) -- //Cian W. / Valentin S.//
 +  * Custom Reference States / custom non-dimensionalization (Rayleigh) -- //Jon A./ Ryan O./ Krista S.//
 +  * Also translation via post-processing (rosetta)
 +  * Code cleanup -- **//​EVERYONE//​**
 +  * Increased modularization (parallel framework / buffer objects)
 +  * ISPack-enabled Legendre transforms
 +
 +
 +=== New Future Directions ===
 +  * Generalized 3-d/1-d/1-d read-in interface for:
 +  * Initial Conditions
 +  * Boundary conditions
 +  * More general boundary conditions
 +  * E.g., imposed B, heterogeneous thermal B.C.s, time-varying B.C.s, etc.
 +  * Python interface for interfacing with generalized interface
 +  * Diagnostic value specification with strings
 +  * Common walltime communication (here)
 +  * File numbering w/ backwards compatibility (here)
 +  * Output nrec bug (here)
 +  * Have make install also install python libraries + support code etc.
 +  * 3-D output class in Python ​
 +  * Additional scalar field -- //Sebastian H. / Loren M. / Cian W./ Valentin S.//
 +  * Adding an Inner Core -- //Krisa S. / Connor B. / Hiro M. / Cian W. / Jon A.
 +  * Test field method (?)//
 +  * No cutout at r=0
 +  * Alternative radial basis functions
 +  * Z averaging / Z slicing
 +  * Possibly use code from Calypso supplied by Hiro
 +  * New Repository for post-processing scripts
 +  * Connecting Python to 3-D checkpoints (possibly here)
 +  * Adding lagrangian tracers
 +  * Additional time-stepping schemes
 +  * Reducing size of diagnostic code lists (groups; python/​string automation)
 +  * Extensible/​Modifiable equation sets
 +  * Cartesian mode
 +  * Alternative geometries
 +  * More generalized/​modular outputs
 +  * More complete preamble information
 +  * Automatic testing for Rayleigh
 +  * Serial Rayleigh?
 +  * Angular-momentum conservation bug (what should be solved? / what is implemented)
 +  * Conserve core/​mantle/​inner-core angular momentum (slow down / speed up boundaries)
 +
 +
 +
 +=== Additional Diagnostics ===
 +  * Dipole tilt as a function of time
 +  * Gauss coefficients ​ (possibly via Python interface)
 +  * Poloidal and Toroidal scalar functions
 +  * Filtered diagnostics (e.g., upflow/​downflow masks or other variables)
 +  * Magnetic helicity
 +  * Helicity outputs
 +  * Tangent cylinder (inside vs. outside) - aware outputs
 +  * Distinguish between poloidal and toroidal contributions to outputs
 +  * Nusselt-number output
 +
 +=== Post-Processing ===
 +  * Spherical-harmonic filtering
 +  * Pipelines for Vapor / Visit / Paraview etc. 
 +  * Reading 3-D outputs into Python
 +  * VTK output (related to pipelines above; Rayleigh option and Python post-processing)
 +
 +
 +
 +=== Possible Directions? ===
 +  * Time-varying reference state / equation coefficients -- //Loren M.//
 +
 +=== Documentation ===
 +  * Diagnostics (what is in memory / how do I get what is not in memory)
 +  * Can we provide guildlines on setting up an IDE?
